Alexander Chow - Learning from Public Faith, Theology, and Witness in China
Alexander Chow and Graham Hill discuss what we can learn from and about public faith, theology, and witness in China today. Alexander Chow is Lecturer in Theology and World Christianity at the University of Edinburgh. The GlobalChuch Project, podcast episode 41.
Alexander Chow is an American-born Chinese who was raised in Southern California. He completed his PhD in theology at the University of Birmingham, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at Renmin University of China, where he was doing research in Chinese Christianity and teaching in the School of Liberal Arts. Alex joined the University of Edinburgh in September 2013 and is an associate editor of Studies in World Christianity, an academic journal published through Edinburgh University Press.
Alexander Chow has written a number of articles on Christianity in China, and more broadly, in East Asia. His first book, “Theosis, Sino-Christian Theology and the Second Chinese Enlightenment” (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013; Chinese edition: Institute of Sino-Christian Studies, 2015), explores historical types of indigenous theology in China and constructively uses the Eastern Orthodox doctrine of theosis as a point of dialogue with the Chinese context.
